Groundhog Festival starts Sunday morning

June 29, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The 46th-annual Groundhog Festival will get underway Sunday morning in Barclay Square.

“I can always remember which anniversary it is, because it’s the same number as the Super Bowl,” said Roger Steele, Groundhog Festival Committee chairperson. “We’re the summer Super Bowl festival, because we’re the same age.”

This summer, however, committee members prepared for the week-long event with heavy hearts, following the passing of long-time committee member Ursula Albino.

When it comes to children riding in cars, safety always comes first.
